Black Mirror is known for its dark “predictions” about the future. Although the sixth season explored more of the use of artificial intelligence, some episodes had more of a horror movie feel, which displeased some fans.
Charlie Brooker expressed concern about Intelligence and stated that this is one of the reasons he continues to write the series.
“I worry about life – that’s generally what I do – and I’m very worried about artificial intelligence and the use of ChatGPT and things like that. This is a particular concern for me, that’s why I’m here“.
